Review:Elphaba and Boyfriends says:
Hi! I stumbled upon this the other night while I was looking for some vacation reading and I really enjoyed it! I think your characterization of Remus and Tonks are spot-on, and their reconciliation seems believable, as if this is how it really could have happened.

I also like that you have Ted and Andromeda Tonks take on a protective role -- I hadn't really thought about how they would react to Remus leaving and coming back, before -- and effectively become an obstacle that he has to get through in order to get to her. I love that he refuses to leave until he has a chance to apologize to Dora!

Anyway, great job! I've started reading your other Remus stories now, since I liked this one so much.

Author's Response: Hi there!

Thanks so much for the review, I really appreciate it, and I'm so glad you enjoyed this one-shot and that you thought I did Remus and Tonks well. Remus is my favourite character so I do all in my power to get him as right as I possibly can, so I am very glad you think I did a good job on the pair of them. :)

I am also glad you liked how I did Ted and Andromeda. I just tried to see things from their point of view. They had to spend a year watching their daughter be miserable because Remus refused to let them be together. Then they finally do get together and Tonks is happy, only to have him leave again and she is back to square one - miserable. I figure that must be the hardest thing in the world for a parent, to watch their child be miserable knowing there is absolutely nothing they can do. So I figured with all that in mind, they just want to protect Dora as best they can, and they obviously don't like Remus because of what he has done to Tonks, you know?

Anyway, cheers so much for the review, I am really glad you enjoyed it and I hope you like the other Lupin fics too - though stay away from "The Last Marauder" - I wrote it when I was very young and it's dreadful, I only keep it up as a marker of how far I've come since! :)
